There’s a million different colour directions you could take your Christmas decorating this year, bright colours and crazy patterns are everywhere to be found, but I’ve always been hopelessly in love with simple Scandinavian styling for my home. It’s all about the light wood, gold and white in my house for 2014!
When it comes to wrapping my presents I’ll still stick with colour though. Colourful fun will be had, never you worry. It will be a pom pom, glitter tape, giant bow, too much string-filled frenzy.
These little wooden baubles are ridiculously easy to make, just a few staples and you’re done. I found this wood veener edging tape at Bunnings months ago and use it all the time, like the picture hanger I did. One of my fave material finds yet – I think I need 5 more rolls! The the beads were another quick and simple addition, picked up online from Light & Co. I toyed with the idea of painting everything, or covering them with stickers, so if colour is your thing this year go for it! A nice craft session to include the kids in too maybe.
Here’s how to make them yourself…
- Wood veener edging tape – I found mine at Bunnings
- Gold string – picked mine up from Lincraft
- Wood beads from Light & Co
Cut 3 pieces of your veneer tape, all at the same length and stapel them together to form rings
Assemble them together with the staples all at the same end – this will be the bottom of your bauble
Tie your string to the top piece of wood. Give it enough string so it hangs nicely on the tree.
String up your beads in groups of 3. Just tie a knot at one end and loop at the other
